Case report of hyperacute edema and cavitation following deep brain stimulation lead implantation.

Conclusion: While this is an unusual presentation of cerebral edema following DBS placement, ultimately, the outcome was good similar to other reported cases. Supportive care and corticosteroids remain the treatment of choice for this phenomenon. PMID: 33024597 [PubMed]

Conclusions 18F-PI-2620 PET might be a sensitive tool to detect cortical tau deposits in patients with Aβ+ AD and Aβ+ non-AD tauopathies. Furthermore, this study showed that “off-target” binding in the basal ganglia does not affect 18F-PI-2620.

This study highlights the impact of the size of deleted regions, as they may affect the clinical picture of patients with 16p11.2 microdeletion syndrome. Reported cases indicates the key role of the interdisciplinary approach in 16p11.2 microdeletion syndrome diagnostics, as the care of patients with this deletion is based on regular health assessment and adjustment of the nervous system develo pment therapy

Although the underlying pathophysiological mechanism of poststroke aphasia (PSA) is greatly concerned, it remains unclear. By coordinate ‐based (ALE) meta‐analysis, we found that the activation of the left superior frontal gyrus (SFG) and the parietal postcentral gyrus of PSA presented hypoactivation, while there was hyperactivation in the right cerebellar anterior lobe, fusiform gyrus, superior temporal gyrus (STG), superior par ietal lobule (SPL), and subgyral hippocampus. It is worth noting that the changed functional status of area in brain is more involved in right lobe. The future studies on rehabilitation should...

A 65-year-old man presented with amnesia and aphasia for 1  year. Neurological examination revealed reduced strength and sensitivity in the right arm and leg. During hospital admission the patient also reported 38.5 °C fever, dyspnea and cough, associated with cervical lymph node enlargement. Brain magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an abscess in the left parietal lobe (Fig. 1). Chest computed tomography (CT) showed diffuse ground-glass opacities and areas of reversed halo sign in both lungs, as well as expansive lesions in the adrenal glands and cervical lymph node enlargements (Fig.

CONCLUSIONS: Screening employs non-standardised assessments and rarely covers higher visual perceptual deficits. We demonstrates the need for an evidence-based visual perception screen, which should ideally be 15 min or less, be portable, and require minimal equipment. The screen should be suitable for bedside testing and aphasia-friendly. Implications for rehabilitation There is a high demand for training on what visual perception deficits are and how to screen for them. Building local relationships between orthoptists and occupational therapists is perceived as highly beneficial for providing good vision and visua...
